Does anybody locally want to go for a 25-35 mile ride tomorrow in the snow? There is a century group ride going on, but I’m not ready for that.
It would be a slower paced ride. If it’s somewhere near Charlestown, I would ride my recumbent, otherwise I’d have to ride Nermal (because he fits on my car). If I ride Nermal, I will be slower.
Anyway, if you are interested, contact me, and we can try to arrange something.
I feel bad, I didn’t ride today. I woke up late for the second time this week, and really didn’t want to be late to work so soon after starting a new job.
I had started out doing the one-hundred push-up plan. I kept falling behind in the days due to other obligations and laziness.
I now feel I’ll fallen far enough behind, that I can’t continue it. I will begin it again in a week or two when things calm down.
On the bright side, I rode my bike part of the way to work today, and my weight seems to be trending downward again.
I rode in slush in slow for a partial commute on Monday. I rode in cold weather for the same partial commute yesterday. I met up with Bikeolounger yesterday, and picked up some reflective vinyl. I spent a little time applying it to my bike last night.
I intended to ride the partial commute on my Nermal every day this week. The twelve-mile round-trip is not difficult. I packed my work clothes and laptop into my panniers, and went to bed.
I woke up two hours late today, and had a morning meeting I had to get to. So much for riding today.
I’ll be back on the bike tomorrow though. If I oversleep tomorrow, I’ll ride anyway, I don’t have any meetings scheduled.
It’s December, and there have been snow showers on and off throughout the day. So what did I do? I rode my bike! I actually only rode from 6 miles away from work, so 12 mile round-trip.
The ride in was pretty wet, with some rain mixed in. The ride home was colder, and I could hear the precipitation hitting my helmet. It was actually a fun ride. There was no snow accumulation on the roads, so I wasn’t too worried about ice.
Tomorrow is supposed to be dry, and I think I’m going to do the six-mile ride again.
I enjoyed the biking portion of my commute much more than the driving portion
